If It's the Week Before School Starts, I Must Be Enforcing Prerequisites

With my first run of the prerequisite-enforcing, I found that about 20% of the students haven't yet shown evidence of having met the prerequisites.

This isn't as bad as it sounds because I don't have access to the registrar's database of who has passed the prerequisites. And the past few times that I've done this, I wasn't too smart about saving and reusing the data that I've collected.

The fun has already started, as hundreds of students are responding to my scary emails. I can't wait for the day when the registration system will handle this automatically.
